However, applicants in other areas of aerospace engineering may be considered. Significant expe-rience in the aerospace industry is highly desired.

For a tenure track or tenured position appointment, the applicant should have or can demonstrate the potential for scholarly work, including externally funded research and an established publica-tion record. However, a non-tenure track appointment is possible for candidates who are primari-ly interested in teaching. It is the intent to fill this position starting as early as January 2018.

Current research thrust areas of the Department include: computational fluid dynamics, aero-acoustic modeling, rotorcraft aerodynamics, flow control, air-breathing hypersonic and rocket propulsion, autonomous unmanned air and ground vehicles, aircraft and spacecraft guidance, nav-igation and control, aeroelasticity, composites, nanomaterials, smart materials, structural health monitoring, computational structural mechanics, and design optimization.

The Department offers Bachelor, Masters and Ph.D. degrees. The undergraduate program is the nation’s largest with about 1,350 full-time students and has been ranked #1 by U.S. News and World Report for the past sixteen years. In 2016, the Department moved to the Ph.D.-granting category and its undergraduate program is ranked #16 (tied) and its Graduate Program (which includes 29 Ph.D. students) is ranked #35 (tied). Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the World’s largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace, is a nonprofit, independent institution offering more than 70 Baccalaureate, Master’s and Ph.D. degree programs in its colleges of Arts & Sciences, Aviation, Business, and Engineering.
